I am a London based freelance photographer mainly working on headshots, portraits, events and family groups. Alongside this I have my own projects. For this year’s London Photo Show I am presenting images from my ‘Other People’s Shoes’ series.
Other People’s Shoes is an exploration of loss and transition using shoes bought in local charity shops. I began to wonder about the lives of those who had worn the shoes. I have added text to each photograph, using paraphrased selections taken from death notices, obituaries and tributes.
This linkage of the tangible and mundane, with the imagined stories of the shoes’ wearers , encourages a space to reflect. And, what would the shoes you are wearing now have to say?
